General Nutrition Resources for Athletes

Over the past couple of weeks, many of the athletes that I coach asked me how they might improve their diet. While some of them are interested in loosing weight, others are interested in improving their performance and/or finding new, healthy dishes to eat. I pointed these athletes to three resources I use for new ideas. Check them out!

The first resource is a website created by Dietitian Angie Dye called Carpe Diem Nutrition. This website has information about intuitive eating and also offers delicious, healthy recipes.

The second is USA Triathlons Multisport Lab. You can find articles on healthy nutrition, articles on what to eat to improve your performance, and simple recipes such as Almond Tilopia:

The third resource is the Team USA website. They offer a number of fact sheets and videos about athlete specific nutrition.

Here is one of the videos from Team USA:
